Boozy trouble makers in Cornwall could face being told to cough up for being locked up.

Officials are considering charging yobs for the time they spend in police cells.

Twelve hours in custody costs almost £250 and takes officers off the street.

Now the Southwest's Police and Crime Commissioner says that money should be spent keeping people safe.

Tony Hogg thinks it is one possibility, he said: "Over indulgence in alcohol is putting a huge demand on families, on children, on policing, on the health service and we aim to move forward together with the community in putting some limits on the damage there.

"We can't afford the accesses, we can't afford them in the damage alcohol is doing on the violence agenda, to children eventually, on domestic violence, sexual violence, and then there is the excessive demand on our policing."
